How does Chinese medicine protect children with diarrhea in summer?
Recently, due to the hot weather, a large number of children appear to have loss of appetite, poor sleep, easy colds, and diarrhea.
Doctors suggest that in addition to daily health care, some traditional Chinese medicine methods can better treat and treat children.
Due to the high temperature in summer, food and water are easily contaminated by various viruses, bacteria, and parasites; coupled with the weak gastrointestinal function of young children, young children are prone to gastroenteritis.
Especially if young children eat too much cold foods such as ice cream and stay in air-conditioned rooms for a long time, it is easy to cool the abdomen, cold the stomach and intestines and cause gastrointestinal diseases such as diarrhea.
Parents know that when children have a cold and diarrhea is cured, their appetite will suddenly worsen.
One reason is that after taking antibiotics, it affects the growth of normal flora, reduces the synthesis of vitamins, and causes a decline in digestive function.
Some Chinese medicine methods do not have this possibility.
In the western medicine mentioned above, there is no substitute for pediatric massage, which will not affect appetite, and can regulate spleen and spleen function, thereby preventing gastrointestinal diseases.
TCM believes that because of the physiological characteristics of “spleen spleen deficiency” in children, gastrointestinal problems are more likely to occur in summer.
Therefore, infants need to take the spleen and stomach conditioning in the summer. Parents can try their own method of pediatric massage: they can use the spleen tonic method every day.
In terms of prevention, diet conditioning is an important aspect.
The summer diet should be light and hygienic. Do not eat too cold or hot foods, as well as a lot of fruits, and avoid overeating.
In addition, you need to pay attention to local warmth: the elderly should be covered with a thin quilt or blanket after falling asleep; the temperature of the air conditioner cannot be adjusted too low, and avoid the fan and air conditioning outlet directly facing the body, especially directly to the abdomen.
In addition, in order to make your child’s digestive function recover faster, you can give your child some medicine to restore the intestinal flora, such as mommy love, intestinal health and so on.
Of course, the above several pediatric massage health methods can also be based on the role of preventive health care.
